    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★½

    I need a cigarette. And a long cold shower. 

    In the Mood for Love is a beautiful and damning story of unfulfilled potential and lost chances. Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung are both stunning here as neighbors who find comfort, companionship and eventually love after realizing that their spouses are having an affair with one another. 

    While the story remembers only the heartbreak, the film itself absolutely drips in style. Every shot is saturated in technicolor and Maggie Cheung’s outfits are…

His opening monologue in the kitchen is one of the funniest scenes I’ve ever seen in a movie, and I knew I was going to…

    ★★★★★

    An absolute bucket-list item for me to see this movie in 70mm! I am so happy that I got to experience the film at the Aero Theater with Ismael, Jackie and Kate. 

    The movie itself is absolutely wild, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen in tone or scope. I just loved the story as it felt both epic and intimate at the same time.

    Peter O’Toole plays such a strange leading man. I was originally expecting his performance to feel…
